Added reply in a thread 350 or 500 EXC-F - Which bike can do it all? 9/14/2020 3:08 PM

IDK but I can tell you that I was coming home from FOD the same day as the CDR Beehive enduro at the end of August and the only thing i was thinking about was all those NJ plated late model KTM, Husky and Beta two strokes I saw. No idea how they do it, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this too good to be true? Am I going to be robbed? 9/4/2020 6:47 AM

Shipping company + payment release + using make, model, and year every time the bike is referenced = No thanks. More fine upstanding citizens.

Somebody should get that guy that was hammering Sleeter’s thread in here.

Added reply in a thread How do the Betas and TM brands compare to the big five? 8/19/2020 6:59 PM

I have a Sherco. I’ve only had to order OEM parts from a dealer to build up a stock of spares. There are multiple, small dealers that have excellent online inventory and ecommerce. Anything they dont have they can get from Sherco within a few days unless ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fresh outta surgery, need some good moto vlogs 8/17/2020 4:09 PM

They’re relatively short, but “The Runaways” that vurbmoto did was pretty good. “Make Moto Great Again Tour” was also good. Followed Vann Martin across the nationals as a privateer. If youre into hare scrambles and hard enduro gotta check out Zachatk1 ... more »

Just an FYI, most mini splits provide 100% of their rated heating capacity down to 47F outdoor temp. After that they take a pretty big derate. At 0F you’d probably be getting around 50% of the rated capacity. There are exceptions. Mitsubishi H2I models ... more »

Added reply in a thread What to replace during bottom end rebuild? 8/2/2020 2:49 PM

Might want to take a look at some of those transmission gears. They had many gears updated on 2018+ models after they realized they put too many holes in them trying to save weight.

Picking up a set of street bike forks to try because of this thread. If 6” is good then 4” should be excellent. Ill let you know how it goes.

Added reply in a thread Zach Osborne to race GNCC this weekend 7/12/2020 12:58 PM

IDK wtf they were thinking. First it was blue smoke. If nothing else add some f’ing oil. Second, you think being the other raced they DNF’d was exactly the same type of dirt they would have focused on changing an air filter at the pit stop or sealing ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pandemic Pivot?? 7/11/2020 1:27 PM

Yup, issues like that dealt with on a daily basis. In our defense, a lot of times its brought to an architects attention and goes in the “yeah yeah yeah” file. Them when the RFI comes in it’s “hey engineer why didn't you tell us.“ That and “why do we ... more »

I know what your talking about drawings being garbage. I’m a senior HVAC / Plumbing engineer at a decent size firm and some if the crap that goes out is amazing. I believe a lot of it is most go right from school to design work without actually getting ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sunoco Race Fuels 7/8/2020 7:30 PM

Ive been researching a bit since I want a pump gas replacement but have heard mixed things about T4. I believe Optima or 260GTX are the closest. Both are non-ethanol, non-oxygenated, unleaded. I think Optima is 95 octane and 260GTX 98 octane. There are ... more »

Added reply in a thread Weirdest thing you’ve seen at the track? 7/5/2020 5:36 PM

In college my friend and his brother would do this. Loaded a YZ400F and a 125SX into the back of a dodge caravan. Bikes were practically framed when they got to the track. Ill never forget the first time I saw it. Talk about dedication. Made me feel ... more »

Added reply in a thread Insulin pump and motocross 7/3/2020 9:21 AM

I dont know if youve tried, but Skin-Tac wipes instead of alcohol wipes when applying help a lot. It has an adhesive in it which helps bond to the adhesive on the sensor / infusion set. Also, the place that provides the Dexcom supplies includes clear ... more »

Added reply in a thread Insulin pump and motocross 7/2/2020 6:33 PM

This right here. Been a Type 1 for 25 years now. Have had a pump for about 4 years (Tandem T-Slim) and just recently got a Dexcom CGM. CGM is a game changer for riding. I take my pump off when riding and I race hare scrambles so for 2 hours im without ... more »

Added reply in a thread The Baylor Brothers Join Sherco for 2020 6/17/2020 4:16 PM

The filter was caked with dirt and pulled off the cage. Same failure that happened to a few KTMs last year. Obviously they had the experience/ resources to fix it....

I definitely dig mine (300F).

Added reply in a thread Anyone have a Sherco or experience with the quality and reliability of them? 4/16/2020 5:24 AM

I have a 2020 300 SCF. Great bike and really well built. I’ve even found the aftermarket support is pretty good. Not as good as the other brands yet, but if you are willing to look there are some parts from other mfrs that cross over. Then again, it ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM bolts discoloration ideas 3/15/2020 9:38 AM

KTM bolts are not plated but instead are coated with dacromet or some equivalent. Its common in automotive applications. I never had a problem with the actual bolts themselves, but the coating does come off quickly. Especially on bolt heads that are ... more »
